Well, this isn’t the Scream that you know…
While MTV have been holding off on showing the new mask, we finally get to see it today, with the premiere only a few short weeks away.
And whatever that is, it’s not Scream… yet.
Exec producer Jaime Paglia said: “The [original] mask is so iconic. If you were to have that mask in a television series, but you weren’t following any of the characters [from the original], I believe that would be misleading the audience.”
Exec producer Jill Blotevogel added: “It evokes some of the Jason hockey mask and the white Michael Myers mask, but it’s still first and foremost evocative of the Scream mask. It’s sort of a reinvention while also paying homage.”
Wes Craven, creator and director of the iconic movie series, is a producer and said of the mask: “The new mask is cool and scary and takes the series into a new direction. It also ties into the story, which I won’t give away.”
What is you guys think? We really want this to be good… but the proof of the pudding will be in the eating
